Life is beautiful, giveaway winner and mug rugs

Thank you for all of you who have taken the time to leave a comment and entered the giveaway from the Quilting Gallery blog hop and thanks as well to those who have decided that they would follow me and my next ventures. I hope I'll keep you entertained! Now let's share with you the news you have been waiting for I am sure! the giveaway winner is #53 as you can see below
When I checked back the comments, #53 was Peggy who said:
I have emailed Peggy asking her for her snail mail address to send her her prize.

This week-end I managed to finish stitching my block #5 of the Life is Beautiful quilt. I am keeping my "one a month" target at the moment, which is great even it is a slow progress as it means it is moving along. I have now stitched all the blocks I had prepared in the summer though so I'd better prepare a couple more that I'll have ready when Baby has arrived, in case I had some free time :-D
I also need to pick up the Birdie Stitches BOM again as I haven't finished October yet and haven't even started November and December so I am more than 2 months behind now.

And today I finished my 4 mug rugs (2 sets) that I started on Friday night. Another 2 homemade Christmas presents ready to be given away. I don't think I have ever made as many presents myself.
The first set is more country like and is for my Uncle - who is a farmer and my Auntie - who has decorated her kitchen with lots of roasters so I think they should like their set.
I had a tea-towel with chicken that I bought a while back to do something with it, one day so I used it for the backing of this set - very fitting:

The second set is more "Arsenic and old lace" for my Auntie who likes delicate floral china. Again I think she should like her set too.
I used a similar fabric as the cup for the backing of this set:
This gives me more to add to my OPAM list too, this is by far my most productive month ever! But it shall soon slow down once Baby is there, I am sure. Hope you are getting things wrapped up too before the week-end.


  1. Congratulations to Peggy on her winI think you've been very productive this month,well done! I'm like you and still a couple of months behind in finishing of my birdie blocks for this particular BOM...we'll both get there eventually :) Barb.
